Birthday hat

Pattern: Cables and Tassels
Yarn: Bernat Chunky

Used up the whole skein- anything extra went into the tassels. Easy, quick, looks good. The purple is a little more red and less blue than these pics.




Owl Puff

Pattern: Owl Puffs
Yarn: some acrylic I had lying around

I made this little owl for a baby shower. It's cute. And easy. That's all.


Belt

Pattern: Boulder Belt
Yarn: Quince and Co. Sparrow

I got this yarn in a giveaway. I had only one skein, so I had to find a good pattern to use it all up for. I started this back after Linda was born. Now it's done! I made a size small because that's all the yarn I had. Luckily it fits.

FO: Choker

Pattern: Amelia
Yarn: some mercerized cotton I had sitting around. I don't remember what it was or where it's from.

I started this back when Linda was born. A year ago. It had been sitting in a basket waiting to be blocked for months and months. Before New Year's I decided to go through all my UFOs and finish some up before the end of the year.

Blocking:

With a button:


Problem: the cotton doesn't block well. It started rolling up after wearing it a few hours. I'm thinking of starching it to see if that makes it stay out. What do you think of that? Will starch work?
